Ronald Reagan might have been the first professional actor elected president, but as Arthur Miller reminds us in his delightfully acerbic, On Politics and the Art of Acting, Reagan was by no means the only actor to occupy the White House in modern times. Beginning with our latest farcical election, Miller considers the twin arts of acting and politics in our brave new Age of Entertainment and contrasts the relatively poor thespian skills of presidential candidates Bush and Gore with the consummate art practiced by some of the great masters of the modern American political stage: Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At once witty, wise, and deeply provocative, On Politics and the Art of Actingis essential reading for Arthur Miller's fans and anyone seriously interested in the American political scene.
